Hijacked

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/9093282]

We all have the potential to be hijacked in our lives. Some by affairs … some by greed … others by addiction … and others by bitterness.

It is easy to see the impact on ourselves, our families, our ministries, our churches, our friends.

Our hope around here is that you are able to connect with other women in leadership. So if or when these times come, you can have someone to reach out to who will not dish out judgment, but instead encouragement and prayer.

But sometimes, leaders need extra help and counseling too. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of a couple of amazing organizations out there:

Blessing Ranch in Colorado. Where Christian leaders are blessed, broken hearts are mended, freedom is found, and comfort comes to those who desire a crown of praise rather than a spirit of despair…all to God’s glory (Isaiah 61:1-3)

  • Professional psychological services that restore and renew Christian leaders for effective Kingdom service
  • Meaningful retreat opportunities for Christian leaders through Weeks of Ministry Excellence
  • Academic programs focused on Pastor Care and on spiritual renewal
  • Other selected resources that help Christian leaders be healthy and whole

Save My Marriage (New Beginning) is a three-day intensive workshop for troubled marriages. More than just teaching information, they focus on developing life skills and alternative behaviors that empower couples with new ways of communicating, interacting and understanding themselves, their spouse and their marriage. The A New Beginning workshop is designed exclusively for couples in marriage crisis.

And though I am no professional, you can contact me anytime on Facebook or by email at [email protected]

Thoughts? Any other resources out there?

    This is great Lori! Dan and I went to a marriage retreat in our first year of marriage after I experienced a miscarriage and my emotions made it really hard for me to view him as my helper. It is so important that ministry wives are able to have a place where they can find comfort and encouragement when our lives go haywire.

    First I love this video= where else can you see a cat get blown up and Chuck Norris with major guns! Love it!!!!

    My husband and I have had the opportunity to visit Blessings Ranch for a week as we dealt with the loss of our 18 month old son, Caden. I have to say I went in so worried what others would think and say. I even made it so clear to a few people who knew we were going that our marriage was fine….we just had to work through this spiral in our lives known as grief.

    I think sometimes we allow others thoughts to hijack our own growth. I am thankful for the ministry that they have there and also the people who encouraged us to go with open hearts.
